The visit of Janelle, Luke and Heidi only lasted for a few days, but we were able to fit a lot into those days. We spent time at the Carnegie Science Center, a day in Kirkland, the Pittsburgh Children's Museum, and a ride on the riverboat. They were also able to attend our weekly district meeting with the elders. Janelle attended the whole meeting which Jim taught to two districts. They all heard everyone's weekly "highlights" and then during the lesson portion
Our fun family visitors left Pittsburgh Saturday morning and flew home to enjoy the rest of conference in Salt Lake. We spent the day Saturday watching conference in our apartment and then
General Conference was amazing. It was hard to pick a favorite talk. The teachings about the Sabbath Day as a sign between God and man and also the many references to dealing with adversity in life especially resonated with us at this time. Hearing from the three new apostles, Elders Rasband, Stevenson, and Renlund was also a highlight.
We also attended the transfer meeting in Greentree on October 6th. Megan sadly said goodbye to her companion, Sister Sears. Megan will stay in Butler with a new companion, Sister Bills, and Sister Sears will be quite far away in Hanover, PA. We feel that we got quite close to Sister Sears and so it was hard for all of us to make this change. We are learning all about making lots of changes on our mission--but not nearly as many as the young elders and sisters have to make.
Anyway....change is good...we will keep telling ourselves that!
